April 2020 – Divorce and the Coronavirus — It’s a New World

The world is rapidly changing for everyone during the COVID-19 pandemic, and those changes are bound to continue escalating in the coming weeks and months. With social distancing governing the way we conduct our day-to-day lives, every aspect of what we do is being drastically affected. We are all concerned about our families, communities, and the lasting effects the coronavirus will have on our economy. Although it often feels like the world has stopped spinning, individuals and families will still need legal help. With so much unknown, many people are wondering how the coronavirus will affect their divorce and other family law proceedings.

Is now a good time to file for divorce? What will happen to my ongoing divorce case? How does this affect child support or alimony payments? These are all questions our clients have asked us in recent weeks. Information on the virus is changing every day, but our team is working hard to stay apprised to the changes and updates that are affecting divorce matters. While prioritizing the health and safety of our clients and our team, we’re still working hard, and working together, to help our clients navigate this difficult time for our world.
